Bassist Simon H Fell is here wearing his improviser's hat, and working in small and large groupings. The trio is amere3, himself, Rob Dainton (drums) and Phil Hargreaves (saxes/flute). The large grouping is the Infinite Monkey Orchestra (because if you gave them enough time they'd play the andante from Brandenburg 4) - a flexible line-up of people involved in the Liverpool Gathering. Adventurers all (taken from the Sound & Music website)
Thanks to Phil Hragreaves (Whi Music) for his help with this release.
Additional thanks to everyone who took part and were happy for me to put this special recording out.
Whi music is dedicated to promoting the power and beauty of improvised and experimental music. Based in Liverpool, UK, it's largely based around my activities and collaborations.
Simon H Fell formed Bruce's Fingers record label in 1983 and has documented both long-term associations and less permanent and informal playing situations, along with a series of improvisation-related compositions.
